A nice way to start the evening with prosecco alongside dinner in the new Coburg before moving onto the NCH for the RTÉ NSO Shostakovich Testimony.
Expensive for an average prosecco and not a great meal, bedding in issues with Service and the Kitchen we suspect.
Lovely Prosecco from Treviso
Golden colour. Deliciously fresh.
Effervescent fresh, with a soft personality, perry sweet edge. Great party wine.
We served this to Ross and Amy at the “wings” ‘celebration’ dinner.
Pre “People Places and Things” prosecco in Wyndhams – an elegant, crisp, crystal clear glera in the Basement Bar
Great value from Dunnes. Nice start to the McConkey Lunch
Dad offered us this Magnum when Liz, Brian, Lesley and I dropped in to wish them a Happy New Year
Bright Straw colour. Slightly sweet apple and pears to my taste. Nice nonetheless.
Tony Hodges introduced this on his weekend visit.
A great weekend starting with a visit to the Fishshack for supper. Having narrowly avoided a trip to Mountjoy (sold out!) we then visited Ryans of Parkgate Street, Collins Barracks, The Weston for Tea, The Abbey and had a nice meal in Nicos.
The prosecco, described as Il Vino dei Poeti was lovely, fresh with soft bubbles and almond nut.
This was the house wine in Nicos, a 2013 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo from Cerulli Spinozzi.
Reliable background music to the super food.
Gulp, all I had chilled was this number, a C from The Devil’s Cellar in Chile.
A blend of grapes from the Casablanca, San Antonio (62%) and Limari (38%) areas.
Despite my ABC prejudices, this wasn’t bad: buttery, slightly oaked structure, well presented, rich takeaway.
La Farra Prosecco Supmante.
Ian & Jean served this at Ian’s launch of
The Reluctant Cannibals in the Winding Stair bookshop.
Very dry, effervescent bang of an Apple Orchard in the mouth, very moreish. If the book is as good as this it’s a runaway, buy it now.

Dad brought this some time ago and it had been sitting silently on the top shelf in the fridge – a delicious aperitif for The Barranore’s last supper and we were also joined for dinner by Amy & Ross.
100% Glera (the EU name for Prosecco) picked from vines near Treviso.
Pale grass colour, lively nutty nose, taste of aniseed and fruit, very crisp clean fizz.
“Harmonious Emotions” for sure. More info
